Raise your hand if you're surprised Kylie Jenner's Kylie Lip Kit sold out within a minute of launching online. Oh, no one? Yeah, me either. Luckily, I prepared myself for this day's disappointment by rounding up the best Kylie Lip Kit alternatives and where to get them.
I can honestly say I've been waiting for The Kylie Jenner Lip Kit for some time now. Jenner is the princess of pout, and (lip injections or not) it's obvious that she is knowledgeable about makeup and beauty. We've been hearing tons of rumors and suggestions about the kind of products she uses to achieve the desired, full matte lip look, but it wasn't until she announced her very own line of lip products that we could guarantee using exactly what Kylie uses.
The lip kits consist of a liner and matching liquid lipstick. The kits come in three shades, Dolce K, Candy K, and True Brown K. Because is it even a Kardashian-Jenner product without a signature K? The shades are light, medium, and dark and all come in matte finishes.
Liquid lipsticks can be tricky in formulation because they have a tendency to be exceptionally drying. I'm anxious to hear the reviews come in, since I won't be able to experience the magic myself. If you, too, were unlucky online today, have no fear.
Here are the best alternatives for The Kylie Jenner Lip Kit.
Candy K Alternatives
This liquid lipstick was made in collaboration with Manny MUA and has the same soft, feminine vibe as Candy K. It's also a dupe for the pricer Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Pure Hollywood.
These pencils are creamy and easy to work with, but still long wearing. You can even use this pencil alone to recreate Kylie's famously matte lips.
This is, in my opinion, the best liquid lipstick available at the drugstore. It's extremely pigmented and minimally drying, and reminds me of the now-also-sold-out Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in "Milkshake".
Dolce K Alternatives
Kylie loves mauve and brows in a lip, and this color pairs the two tones together for a really wearable look.
This one became an instant classic because it is the perfect, cool '90s girl shade. It looks like an exact dupe for Dolce K, which was smart on Jenner's part — this one sells like hotcakes.
To suggest any other pencil would be a waste of time, especially for the price. These are the best, most affordable and accessible pencils out there and they come in a million different colors.
True Brown K Dupes
This dupe has a little more reddish brown tint to it, but mixing it with another color (like the super brown "Sepia") turns it into a perfect dupe.
An insanely close dupe to True Brown K, and super affordable. These OFRA formulas are moisturizing but still last without flaking or crumbling on your lips.
If you have trouble finding a "true brown" you can always alter the color by using a a brown lip liner as the base of the lip. Lip liners can truly alter (and improve) a pout color.
